  • 16 oz can of biscuits
  • 2 Tbs butter melted
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix sugar and 2 tsp of lemon zest together in a small bowl, set aside.
  • Cut each biscuit in half. Roll each biscuit into a rope and tie each rope in a loose knot. Tuck
  • the ends underneath the knot. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Brush tops of knots with melted butter.
  • Dip buttered tops in lemon sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • While knots are baking, make glaze by mixing powdered sugar and lemon juice.
  • Remove knots from oven and let sit a minute or two, while knots are still warm, drizzle them with lemon glaze.
  • Let cool for 2-3 minutes for glaze to set.


  1. You can use fresh or bottled lemon juice in your glaze.
  2. You can add some extra lemon zest to your glaze for some added lemon flavor.
  3. If you want a stronger lemon sugar flavor let lemon zest sit in sugar overnight to infuse.
  4. You can use pretty much any type of biscuit you would like for this recipe, read above regarding my recommendations.
  5. We like to drizzle these with the glaze when they are still slightly warm, you can also dip them in the glaze to get more coverage.
  6. Let cool slightly before serving so the glaze has time to set up.
